Post any poetry here. It's just too hard to define "inspired" in this context, so we will settle for that which inspires.

Go Perfect Into Peace - Peter Kelso (Age 11)

(My sister sent me this so I can't provide a link.)

Go perfect into peace,
Peace mighty-majestic and molded, mounted
Upon the satin whipped waves of the heavens.
Roam in orchards of twilit apples, and
Drawn by a million vermillion stallions,
Shadow dappled across the fields of legend—
Go perfect into peace.

Go perfect into peace,
Grave and golden,
Free of fiery fury.
Bathed in the glowing tears of dawn,
Night-washed, night webbed—
Go perfect into peace.
